Lightning Ridge

  • It took a few years in the early 1900''s for the famous Black Opal to become acknowledged for its true quality and rare beauty. Lightning Ridge has become synonymous with Black Opal mining in Australia. Visitors either fossicking for fun or looking for their fortune and numbers far outweigh the tiny population. Lighting Ridge offers a true vision of gritty life in the Australian outback. The town''s mineral water spa baths are simply luxurious.
